Description raindrops 2006-03-08 15:44:32 UTC
Currently, the user can select multiple objects in the "Custom animation"
dialog, and then apply the same effect to them (by pressing the "Add" or
"Change" button.)

But he cannot apply the same property to all these objects in a similar way,
although these properties are common for all kinds of effects. He has to select
each object separately, and then click on the [...] button, and enter the values
in the first tab. Then he has to change the tab and again enter another value,
and then press OK. 

This tedious process can be avoided: The user should be able to select multiple
objects and apply the property to all objects.

Reproducible. Reassigned.
Comment 2 the4thchild 2007-12-03 03:38:31 UTC
A possible workaround in the meantime is to select the objects, group them, and
then add the animation to the grouped object.
Comment 3 raindrops 2007-12-03 13:37:04 UTC
raindrops -> the4thchild:

I'm afraid that's not a correct solution in most of the cases: 

If we group all the objects, all of them will appear AT ONCE; not in the
sequence we want. The relative motion between different objects will also be lost.

Just an usability issue. It would be really good to have it fixed.

Reset assigne to the default "".
